Pliyev was talking on his cell phone with his girlfriend one autumn afternoon when two dozen masked men in uniforms stormed into his family's house, grabbed him and began to hustle him away. He hasn't been seen since. Officials in Ingushetia say they don't know anything about Pliyev's abduction, one of scores in recent months that have caused fresh outrage and grief in a region already scoured by years more than 15 years of armed conflict.

Russian officials say a series of explosions at a house police were trying to search has killed a policeman and a civilian and wounded at least 28 other people.

Svetlana Gorbakova, a spokeswoman for the Ingushetia Investigative Committee, says the explosions took place at a house on the outskirts of Nazran, the region’s main city. Emergencies Ministry duty officer Alexei Titarenko said the blasts occurred as officers were trying to enter the house to look for an insurgent.

Ingushetia suffers persistent violence connected to militants fighting against police and Russian troops.
